I am having a hell of a time coming up with something I like for this trailer.. Because I’m getting ready to spend an enormous amount of money on a wrap for this thing (outside white is in good condition so I don’t have to wrap all of it) Indigured I would ask for help. Plus I saw how the graphics worked out for the Howard so I figured the group would be better than what I was planning.

It is a vee Nose so I’m not sure what to do there as well.

Originally I wanted to show that we are rdp and Team rdp so we sell houses as well as all the stuff boating. Now I’m kinda all over the board. I don’t really want to put a boat or vehicles on it, going more for an actual design for the trailer itself..

Colors can be white black & grey (match the motorhome)

Or red / black / silver (match our 10x20 ezups)

The three doors open but the design would be the same on the backside. There is also a 2’ sign that spans most the trailer that is on hydraulics not shown in the pics. That will save www.RiverDavesPlace.com on it and will be lit for night.

whoever comes up with the best design is gonna get something cool from me worth $$..

If they are in town for desert Storm a ride in the rdp helicopter? Out of town maybe custom rdp yeti cooler?
Whatever it is I will make it worth your while..

Here’s the trailer! I will post a pic of the motorhome (graphics are way to busy to put on the trailer but maybe similar colors?)

I will also post pics of the ezups when I find them.

EZUP’s. (We have two 10x20’s and a 10x10 for TRDP, so when they are all out it’s a lot of presence.. I’m not sure how much we will be using them now though with the trailer?)

Originally I as kinda thinking of something like the graphics on this boat because the colors are similar to our ezups.. just with a lighter silver

Are you more concerned about how it looks going down the road or what it looks like with the vending doors open?

not sure I’m seeing the difference? When the doors are open there isn’t much to see on one side but the backside stays the same. When the doors are closed it would look the same as the backside?

Dave, take a close look at the stuff Wolf Designs has been doing on their IG. The wall in his shop is pretty cool too.

My .02 is I would keep it clean and crisp. I like the black/white/silver/gray/graphite combos. You can use red rdp logo to match your EZ ups and it would be stand out very well.

I had just a couple minutes to pull these examples of his work.

I would think most people would see the trailer in transit, so you want to catch their eye and convey a message quick. I would use just a little bit of red in the graphics and make the RDP in red to stand out. Plus whatever points about RDP, ie: boating, off-road, realty, should stand out and be easily read.
I figured you probably know this, but I find myself always trying to read logos/advertising on vehicles and these are the things I think of.

My two cents...match the outside to the motorhome and the inside to the easy-ups.

So why don't you do a life-sized picture of a boat underway. The left side would be the left side of the boat right side would be the right side of the boat and the back of the trailer would be the back of the boat

Yeah, make it look like a boat on a tilt trailer. Bottom on one side, top on the other.
Just don’t want to upset/offend anyone by not choosing the right boat manufacturer.

In the case of this particular trailer, I think I would go with a more simplified logo/graphic arrangement. Maybe more the logo with colors to match EZ-ups, with just the big Team RDP logo, and the web or contact info below. "Team RDP" going down the road may get people just curious enough to look into what you are, motorsports, softball, cheerleading team, whatever...people google stuff. The reason I would lean towards doing the trailer independent comes from doing the shows I used to do...the tow rig changed often, the sales trailer did not.


Then again, I also think you need stripper poles...that would work too.

have the website put on the top of the trailer as large as you can. Just in case google earth takes a pic. That’s free advertising for a few years if it’s parked in a busy location

Well if set up in street vendor format no will be able to see the back and if the doors open you can't see the front. leave it plain and go for flags. I have years of watching food vendors at the county fair I am involved with (40 years experience, inductee in the Fairs Hall of Fame in KS). Something extra set up out as far in front as you can get by with will pull in more people.
But I understand why you want graphics. Big readable and simple is my suggestion.

What about doing a wrap with a scene type deal from something like DS etc? I mean putting the RDP logo on is great but what about those that know what it is. Make it just absolutely known what RDP is all about.
